Update: Portal 2 to NOT Get Move Support Afterall

[UPDATE] Since this post’s publication, Valve issued the following statement: “There’s a story making the rounds regarding Portal 2 support for PS3 Move. Unfortunately this quote was ‘lost in translation’–Po rtal 2 does not include support for Sony’s motion controller.” Too bad!! However there was no statement made saying that the PC code, cloud saves, and cross platform gameplay were false, so it still seems that those features are still ‘confirmed’ I’ll keep everyone updated as I look into this further. The original post can still be read below.

If you were anything like me, when portal hit the PS3 with Team Fortress 2, and the Half Life collection packaged in a perfect match up called the Orange Box, you went out and got it right away and first thing you did was tear into Portal with a fervor like a hungry man tears into a steak. After completing Portal I felt incomplete….alone, well no more, we learned last year at E3 that we would be getting a juicy sequel to the critically acclaimed title from Valve software.

With Portal 2 set to launch in April of this year loaded with features, today we learn about another juicy feature to the most anticipated game of 2011, Deploying surprise in…3…2…1…Move support! Yes that’s right, Portal 2 will feature “full move support” according to Valve. Valve’s own Chet Faliszek spoke of the feature VIA the German PlayStation blog and claimed it was “compensation for PS3 users not getting a Left 4 Dead release” (I think Valve is starting to see the light and are regretting not giving the PS3 the attention it deserves)

Other goodies that came with this update include PS3-Exclusive cloud saves, and a free code for a PC version of portal 2, also PS3 players will enjoy cross platform gaming with PC players through Steam, it just keeps getting better and better, April can’t come soon enough!!

  • And yet another reason to get move if you haven’t already done so!!!

  • Ravenitrius

    I be sure to play on the PC with you while ignoring the fact that I will get the PS3 version just for the PC version copy. LOL

  • pedro

    Now multiplatform gameplay doesn’t sound unfair (:

  • Jonaskin

    Haven’t played the original, I’d be keen to pick it up.

  • Royalty32

    Its about damn time Valve got its head screwed on rite. Now just bring L4D3 to ps3 and we’ll call it even……………………………..or will we.

  • Jonaskin

    And it’s awesome that Valve have seen the error of their ways and are really going all out to make a big impression with their first official PS3 release (as Orange Box was ported by EA themselves unless I’m mistaken).

  • Not so sure if they have seen an error. More like they are not bringing STEAM to the Xbox because windows has their own system (http://www.gamesforwindows.com/en-US/). Why would Windows want STEAM on a product that is going to force competition?

    Then again it’s cool just to see them bring Portal 2 to the PS3 and that it will support MOVE.

  • things are definatly looking up for the ps3 as far as valve coming on board in a major way!

  • derrickgott007

    I called it! Move will be bought by me just for this game!

  • Oly

    Supposedly there will be no move support.. It was a mistake someone released… I’ll find proof..

  • yes game becomes even better bring on the Move

  • As per the update Valve has squashed our hopes of move support for portal 2, sad day 🙁 But it seems the the other features stated are still on the table as the press release did not address the claims and squash those so we can still hope that they are still a go.

  • Kratos

    Move is a joke, I’m glad Valve has enough sense to ignore it.

  • “Deploying suprise in 3….2…..1….” should be followed by “Half-Life 3” >.>….it’s been forever.

  • Jcmdaddy: “Deploying suprise in 3….2…..1….” should be followed by “Half-Life 3″ >.>….it’s been forever.  

    lol that would be great

    “However there was no statement made saying that the PC code, cloud saves, and cross platform gameplay were false”

    I thought cross platform multiplayer was already confirmed for this title, wasn’t it?

  • ahhh boo no move

  • Oly

    ^

    Yes, cross platform was officially announced

  • They probably have this deal with the razer guys for motion control. And we should agree by now move’s motion options are limited compared to Razer.

  • Beastxjason

    Would be crazy with move

  • pedro

    Emrah: They probably have this deal with the razer guys for motion control. And we should agree by now move’s motion options are limited compared to Razer.  

    What is Razer?

  • It’s a motion controller for the pc, without using any cameras, but it has dual analogue sticks for both controllers in hand, which are both motion enabled, and has a lot more gaming options than the move because of this. (I’ve been advocating such a thing for ages, since when the first specs of move was released, I was against it not having an analogue stick)
